Calculus can be an intimidating subject if you don't have a good teacher. It is important to have a teacher that takes things step-by-step so the students don't get lost. That is exactly what this DVD set provides.
I have tutored many, many people in Math through Calculus, and I have found that if you start off with the basics and take things one step at a time - anyone can learn complex Math topics. This 2-DVD set contains 8 hours of fully worked example problems in Calculus 1 and 2.
After viewing this DVD course in Calculus 1 & 2 you'll discover that the material isn't hard at all if it is presented in a clear manner. No knowledge is assumed on the part of the student. Each example builds in complexity so before you know it you'll be working the 'tough' problems with ease!

Definitely purchase these if you either haven't had math in awhile (like me) or your instructor's teaching style does not match your learning style (also like me). WELL worth the money!!! The money I spent on the dvd's was probably much cheaper than what I would have spent on Advil and therapy. :)
Now that the semester is over, I can say that this DVD by Jason Gibson is the first resource that we turned to (and got the most out of) in getting through the basic ideas of derivatives and integrals in Calculus 1. As other reviews here note, Gibson is a fine teacher, and he does a good job in making the topics clear. By comparison, we found the "Great Courses" series that we sampled to be very fusty -- more geared to an audience quite a bit older. We soon found, however, that a number of topics in my son's first-semester calculus class were not covered in this DVD, so we ended up buying Gibson's other calculus DVDs. Even then, however, some topics just aren't covered, so we also turned frequently to various YouTube tutorials. We also got a lot of help from the books "How to Ace Calculus" and "The Calculus Lifesaver." (In fact, if you are a serious student and are motivated to really master calculus as completely as possible, I would recommend the "Lifesaver" book as the most comprehensive, but still reasonably friendly, treatment of Calculus 1 and 2.)
In sum, this DVD helped us quite a bit -- especially at first when we were first getting a handle on the basic material. I wish I had resources like it the first time I studied calculus back in the dark ages.
I think the reason is that the teaching style is so approachable...as you watch the teacher he actually makes you think that learning calculus is easy, which is a hard pill to swallow if you are struggling student as I was. Once those barriers are broken down, and you begin to realize that it isn't that hard at all, my confidence began to soar and I was off and running.
I would recommended this DVD to anyone taking Calculus. If you need some help like learning *how* to do the math without all of the repetitive lecturing then this DVD is for you.
